So I saw a tweet about these new Black Radiance 8 pan palettes about 2 weeks ago and I ran off to find them.
Lucky I didn’t have any trouble finding them, thank God. Look familiar? Below is the Wet N Wild 8 pans, it seems that Black Radiance is their sister company. Who knew?
Swatches of the Wet N Wilds will be up next Monday.
Of course I picked Posh Plum up first because…. well look at it! It’s so girlie and pretty. All the colors have shimmer but the 3 mattes have the least in them. They all swatched pretty easily but the mattes needed an extra swipe. I thought she would be my favorite of the 3 but surprisingly it’s not. *gasp*
Downtown Browns is the most neutral of the 3, so if that’s your thing then this one is a must have for you. This one is mostly metallic with a couple of shimmers. This palette was the easiest to swatch, it didn’t have any problems with any of the colors.
Urban Jungle is bea-u-ti-ful! It’s the most unusual of the bunch. Most of the shades have a nice sheen and the last color is chalk full of shimmer. This palette is wonderfully pigmented. I was shocked at how much I like it.
I like all of the palettes but I could have passed on Downtown Browns simply because I’m not a neutral kind of gal. Even though Posh Plums is the prettiest, it’s the most dupeable. Urban Jungle is the best of the bunch, you got some nudes, some colors that pop and it’s not too wild where it’s inappropriate for a professional workplace. All the colors have shimmer in them but it’s not that noticeable in the mattes and metallics. All the eyeshadows are soft, pigmented and blend well. They are limited edition so hurry up and grab them!
Available: I found them at Walgreens but most have spotted them in Rite Aids. I would definitely call around before driving all around town.
